Scented letter prompts suspicious package investigation in Thornbury

OPP say any parcel emitting an unexpected odour will be flagged

What was first believed to be a suspicious package turned out to be a smelly letter.

The Collingwood OPP was called at about 9:20 a.m. Tuesday by the Canada Post office in Thornbury with reports of a package emitting a strange odour. Investigators dug deeper and say they discovered a letter had been dipped in a harmless substance to enhance the fragrance of the parcel.

The incident was deemed non-suspicious. Collingwood OPP is reminding residents that parcels emitting a strange odour will be flagged and investigated.
